Doctor insights on:
It depends: Percentages mean nothing. If your absolute lymphocyte count is below about 800, or your white count above about 12000, I'd want to know why. If all the white cells appear normal, and you feel well, it's not an emergency. These percentages fluctuate wildly even hour by hour. Your physician is your best guide. ...Read more
Need big picture: White cell percentages are meaningless apart from other information. You will make your search for health far more difficult if you focus on labs, though this does suggest something's amiss. Is your absolute granulocyte count high, your absolute lymphocyte count low, or both? If neither, the % is probably meaningless. With petechiae, are your platelets low (rule out lupus?). ...Read more
My granulocyte number is 7.0 and the granulocyte percentage is on the high side at 78.4. Does this mean anything worrisome?
Unlikely concern: Your Granulocyte numbers are slightly high . This can happen due to infections. You should give us the complete report of your CBC in order to give a more clear picture. If the WBC count is >10,00 and you have no fever or recent infections, then I would be concerned and ask you to repeat your blood counts(CBC) and make sure that there is no further increase in your WBC counts. ...Read more
Granulocytes (55-80%) are 46.1, lynphocytes (25-40%) are 47.7 other lynphocytes (1.2-3.2 Gpt /L) are 3.3. She feels healthy. What does this signify?
Blood cells: These are types of white blood cells, part of the immune system. Basophils are present in very low concentrations, so it would be very unusual to have too low a basophils count. But granulocytes are the most predominant wbc, abd can be low for many reasons. Too many to enumerate here, but medications, certain problems such as lupus, etc. A hematologist can help. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Don't worry: A granulocyte is a blood cell that fights infection. You have a large percentage of them in your blood all the time. It could just be a random finding to see an immature one. It could also be that you have an infection causing a recent increase in the number and type of cells that fight infection. Follow up with your doctor. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Rise in WBC.: Granulocytes, a type of white blood cell, are involved in fighting bacterial infection. It is normal for their number to increase in that setting. Granulocytes will also go up with exposure to corticosteroids (drug such as prednisone) and will increase therapeutically with administration of g-csf (drugs Neupogen and Neulasta (pegfilgrastim) for example). Any symptoms are from the reason for the increase. ...Read more
Need numbers: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, it would have helped to have the actual numbers rather high and low. You may consult this site for information: https://medlineplus.gov/ency/article/003657.htm For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more
How immature: If the so call "immature" granulocytes were band or metamyelocytes, it is of no concern. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more
Is immature granulocyte % .7= 70% or 7/10 of a percent. Reference range seems to be .4 or .5 so i figure the latter. Not sure?
There are a variety: Of immature neutrophils but sounds like you are ok. ...Read more
Is this normal ? Can you read this? LDL2.33-HDL1.04-GFR79-glucose fast5.1WBC8.1-Bilirubin6-ALT9 & differential is M-0.8-E0.1-B-0.0-granulocytes 0.0
Out of context: This is way too ambiguous with so many missing other labs. Labs are interpreted in whole. Picking numbers randomly and without the full medical history is not in any way going to lead to a valid medical consult. ...Read more
Not much: Pay attention only if the absolute granulocyte count is quite high, perhas 8000. This may indicate an infection, and it may be serious especially if there are young forms, toxic granulation or vacuolization. Most often, absoute counts that are a bit high reflect stress; twenty minutes in a cold shower can raise them to double the top of the reference range or higher. ...Read more
Neupogen: It is a drug that stimulates proliferation of granulocytes & treats people with low neutrophil count. Not sure why you're asking if safe to give to healthy granulocyte donor, unless you meant "from", instead of "for", and in that case, yes it is. ...Read more
WBC counts: absolute granulocyte count=total WBC count x % granulocytes This is a means of monitoring the risk of infection in people getting chemotherapy mostly, as a low absolute count are high risk for infection. It is more useful than either the total WBC or differential percentage alone. ...Read more
What does it mean to have all blood work normal except the immature granulocyte number and percent was low ?
Need more info: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, a few immature granulocytes, with no blasts, is not a cause for concern. ...Read more
